DC’s Dawn of the Justice League special last night dropped copious amounts of awesome on everyone last night. Now that the dust has settled, it’s time to take a look at everything piece by piece. For all of the most pressing info that came out of the special, hit the jump!
Hosted by Kevin Smith and Geoff Johns, The Dawn of the Justice League special had nerd red to spare. Offering glimpses into each and every one of their upcoming properties, DC breaks down their future slate and introduces us to who will be comprising the Justice League.
Shall we begin?
Wonder Woman – June 23rd, 2017
Beginning with Wonder Woman, the Gal Gadot led film is currently in production as we speak. Not wanting to hold anything back for the first lady of the DC world, Warner Brothers decided to drop a teaser trailer of sorts. Filled with brief interviews from the cast and director (Patty Jenkins), the teaser does a great job of letting fans know just what we can expect from the period superhero actioner without giving any pressing details away (damn you Snyder!!).
Cyborg – April 3rd, 2020
Moving on to Cyborg, Ray Fisher, a relatively unknown to Hollywood, is gearing up to play Victor Stone in the upcoming Justice League and his own solo feature scheduled for April 3rd, 2020. The small teaser we get for him mainly revolves around introducing unknowing fans to the characters back story and showing off intriguing concept art for the characters appearance in the next film.
Aquaman – July 27th, 2018
Next we have Aquaman. Played by Jason Momoa (Game of Thrones), DC has been the most forthcoming with Aquaman information out of all of the other DC heroes not named Batman or Superman. That probably has to do with the fact that his comic history is riddled with jokes and fish puns. That being said, this new take on the king of Atlantis looks bold and serious. Jason Momoa looks as excited as ever and the concept art featured in the video is truly badass. Take a gander.
The Flash – March 23rd, 2018
When DC’s epic slate was announced, everyone was waiting and wondering who they would cast as Barry Allen. With the CW show such a massive success, would Grant Gustin reprise the role in the film universe? No, but someone of equal talent was up for the gig. Ezra Miller (The Perks of Being a Wallflower), may not look the part but considering his massive acting chops, the character is in capable hands. And if his talent doesn’t persuade you, check out how excited he is to tackle The Flash!
Green Lantern Corps – 2020
“We’ve been to these cities, we’ve been underwater, we’ve been to the digital world with Cyborg, but there’s one place we haven’t been to: space. But now we are. So the Green Lanterns and the Green Lantern Corps are coming to join the Justice League universe.” That right there should tell you all you need to know, but in case you missed it: the entirety of the Green Lantern Corp will be introduced in the DCU. Not just Hal Jordan or John Stewart, that includes Simon Baz, Guy Gardner and Kyle Raynor as well! Step aside Ryan Reynolds, the real Green Lanterns are coming!
Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice – March 25th, 2016
Capping everything off with the two biggest heroes in the DC universe, Batman and Superman. With their film only a few months away, the DCU is on the verge of taking the world by storm. Offering bits of new footage and some insightful quotes form the likes of Henry Cavill, Ben Affleck, Jessie Eisenberg and Zack Snyder, there is a lot to look forward to in Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice!
